I’m Tracy Krulik — animal lover, health nut, writer, and big-time Miami Hurricanes and Washington Nationals fan. When I started freelancing for Washington Post Express in 2012, my only goal was to write; the topic didn’t matter. But through the years I found myself pitching more and more “pet” stories and now have articles for peoplez and their petz in other publications including The Washington Post, The Bark magazine, and the APDT Chronicle of the Dog.

Since adopting Emma the Beagle in 2014, I have immersed myself in “all things dog” to help her overcome many many fears, which trace back to her early life as a caged breeder in a puppy mill. Thankfully I am learning from the best in the biz to do so, as I am a student in Jean Donaldson’s Academy for Dog Trainers.
